A message from our founder Master Bruce Wood

As we begin to take the most tentative steps towards what we all hope will be a return to some sort of “normality”, I thought it was time the hard work, fortitude and inventiveness of our team of instructors was acknowledged

Instructor Update

It is my unfortunate duty to announce the departure of two of our instructors - Mr Danny Collins and Mr Lee Walker, both of whom have decided not to renew their membership of the UK Sooyang Do Association, and that, as a consequence, neither are licenced, insured or permitted to teach Sooyang Do, to represent Sooyang Do, or to use the Sooyang Do name or logo in any way whatsoever.  Both Mr Collins and Mr Walker will continue to enjoy my respect, as well as my gratitude, for their contribution to Sooyang Do and I wish them the best of success in their future endeavours.

Master Wood visits some of the North East’s Sooyang Do Clubs

Back from France, North East students welcome Master Wood ..............



It has been my great pleasure to be afforded the opportunity to visit so many of our Sooyang Do schools, throughout the North East of Scotland, in recent weeks. 

Having travelled around the region, teaching so many of our students at Cairncry, Ellon, Balmedie, Kaimhill, Alford, Summerhill, Kintore, Stonehaven and Kemnay, as well as teaching instructors at Summerhill and Peterculter, I have been reminded, once again, of the unique spirit and energy, which encapsulate the very essence of Sooyang Do, and the incredible work of our instructors. 

We are generally slow, in Sooyang Do, to shout from the rooftops about our achievements, preferring to remain true to our tenets, including humility. I am, however, extremely proud of the Sooyang Do team, all of whom successfully combine the promotion of the traditional values of the martial arts, whilst continuing to strive for technical excellence and, even more importantly, prioritising the overall welfare of those who put their trust in us, particularly those younger students whose parents and guardians enable us to contribute and assist in the education of their children. 

As the weekend approaches and we prepare to hold belt examinations for some 350 Sooyang Do students, of all ages and rank, at the Westdyke Centre, I remain truly humbled by the continuing loyalty and dedication of the Sooyang Do instructors. I eagerly anticipate a weekend of positive aspiration, achievement and pride, as we look forward to some even more exciting developments in the future.
